One of five attractive barn conversions in this farmland location, just a mile away from the pretty village of Polperro.

This barn conversion enjoys a tranquil rural location in a hillside location. The fishing village of Polperro is just a mile away and can be reached by a country walk over the owner’s land and down a lane. Here, visitors will find a tidal sea pool, quirky independent shops, a choice of eateries and a small beach. A bigger beach can be found in the nearby harbour town of Looe, a gently sloping stretch of sand with good bathing conditions. From Looe, visitors may like to take a boat out to the nearby Looe Island, a marine nature reserve with a resident seal colony.

This stylish accommodation makes a great place for a couple’s break, or perhaps for a small family using the available extra futon bed. The spacious open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner is located on the first floor of the property and offers a light and airy space with exposed beams, TV, DVD, and wood burner, for which the logs are provided. The contemporary kitchen area is well-equipped with an electric oven and hob, dishwasher, fridge with ice compartment and microwave. Downstairs, the bedroom with king-size bed has its own TV and space for an additional futon bed, suitable for a child. The property’s bathroom has a roll-top bath, separate shower cubicle and WC and the washer/dryer is located under the stairs.

Outside, there is a shared lawn area with outdoor seating for alfresco dining and guests are welcome to explore the grounds where they will find a play area with swings and a seesaw, as well as a games area with nets for tennis, badminton and football. Guests are also free to enjoy the wildlife pond and meet the chickens, ducks and fish. There is ample off-road parking available.

This property has very good bones, but needs a little refreshing in our view. For a couple, the space is well sized, the bedroom and bathroom are both particularly spacious. Some of the equipment could do with an update, particularly the bed and the Wi-Fi, the latter just didnt work at all. If this could be sorted then we would highly recommend thiRead mores property.

Stayed here for a week in July. Owners were very friendly and accommodating. Cottage was well furnished and comfortable. Great location - incredibly tranquil and relaxed. Polperro is an approx. 10 min walk away (albeit quite a steep walk - there is also a public car park available at the bottom of the hill at a cost, if you don't fancy the walk). LRead moreooe is a short drive away - under 10 minutes. Cottage was a great base to visit a number of walks / local attractions. Would recommend. Hide

Beautiful cottage with very friendly owners, location was perfect for what we wanted. Close to bustling Polperro and Looe whilst providing a lovely tranquil base to return to in the evenings. Walk to Polperro is steep but doable and extremely beautiful. Would happily stay again!

How this can be graded is 4 star is beyond me. It is poorly equipped, shabby and access is by a very narrow road from Polperro, we nearly had 2 accidents by idiots coming to fast the other way !.

A very relaxing and peaceful location. Inside and outside (at night) you could hear a pin drop. Relaxation after some stressful events was really important to me and I could really feel myself unwind in this cottage. The bedroom and bathroom is downstairs which was quirky and cute. All the essentials were available and Evelyn was welcoming. The cotRead moretage is situated at the top of a steep and windy single track road. You need a car to get up and down. Bed very comfortable. Hide

Lovely comfortable cottage. Well equipped. Very quiet location. Narrow country roads to and from but are very quiet of traffic that it wasn't a problem.

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

The ancient fishing village of Polruan lies just across the river from the delightful civil parish of Fowey, a bustling picturesque town packed with quirky coastal shops, art galleries and restaurants. Surrounded by some of the region’s most enchanting countryside, this pair of Cornish cousins have a truly magical feel about them. Polruan, with its steep hill and charming cottages looking down over the pretty harbour, and Fowey with its timeless maritime charm, are linked together by the Fowey Estuary, a haven of colourful sailing and fishing boats dotted about on the water.

A short drive away are the nearby harbours of East and West Looe with their quayside restaurants, sandy beaches and wildlife boat trips. The village of Polperro, with its fascinating smuggling history and horse pulled tram is a must-see and Charlestown, with its huge square sail ships is famously known as the key filming location for the hit TV series, Poldark. Children will love winding their way through the scenic coastal landscape with the Bodmin and Wenford Railway and for those brave enough, there is ample opportunity to hunt down the mysterious beast of Bodmin Moor.

The beautiful capital town of Truro with its magnificent cathedral and wide boulevards is just over an hour away by car and the newly redeveloped St Austell, home to the Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan can be reached within forty-five minutes. Surrounded by gorgeous countryside and nature reserves, lakes and rivers, the area boasts some of the best sailing and watersports in the UK. If you are looking for somewhere remote and unspoilt, but with lots to keep you busy, Polruan is the perfect choice.
